Windows 7: Bsod video_tdr_timeout_detected

Bsod video_tdr_timeout_detected


I am looking for help on a BSOD problem that occurs at random caused by Nvidia. I have used the most recent montherboard chipset and video card drivers with no luck. Also did format C and installed windows 7 form scratch. Below is the Win Debuggers results and I have added some in a ZIP. Can anyone please help?

Try uninstalling your nVidia drivers from Programs and Features and Device Manager and rebooting. Then let Windows automatically install drivers.

I tried, but unfortunately, the problem did not go away. I also tried to to uninstall the Nvidea drivers with a subsequent driver sweep to no avail. Windbg gives me the exact same BSOD.

Somebody advised in another forum to regedit the TDR delay to beyong 2sec. Could this help me?

This must go:
91a13000 91a14420   ASACPI   ASACPI.sys   Thu Aug 12 22:52:52 2004 (411C2D04)
Uninstall any ASUS software that you may have installed (ASUS Probe, AI Suite, etc.), then navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers and locate ASACPI.SYS. Rename it to ASACPI.BAK and reboot the computer. See if BSOD's persist.

EDIT: Also:
91a0e000 91a12500   rob_a    rob_a.sys    Mon Feb 10 08:14:19 2003 (3E47A5AB)

Are you using Pinnacle? Uninstall then reinstall it.

Also, just thought I'd mention that Pinnacle is video-related. These 2003 drivers would explain why all errors are bugcheck 0x116.

I did have an old Pinnacle TV card, which I was not using anyways. I located the associated 2003 drivers in the windows\systems32\driverstore\filerepository folder, but I have no Pinnacle software installed (must be remains from when I had). How do I uninstall these drivers now since they do not appear under software? Is there a driver clean program that you can recommend?
